Matthew McConaughey Is Extremely Skinny!
Matthew McConaughey has been warning people for a few months now that he would be dropping 30lbs for a new movie role where he plays a HIV victim. So, these new pictures shouldn’t be surprising…but they are! The 42-year-old looks fragile, old and sick — which is exactly what the actor was going for. The extreme weight loss is for his new movie, ‘The Dallas Buyer’s Club’
“I’m playing a guy who was sick and would have loved to be healthier but wasn’t. For me, it’s more of a mental thing than a physical thing. I’ll get down to the weight I need to get to. I’m on my way, and it’s what I need to do for the job.” the actor told Larry King.
He also told late night host Craig Ferguson that his normal everyday diet consisted of some egg whites in the morning, a little piece of chicken for lunch and a 4 oz steak for dinner. He claims that he treats himself with “two diet Dr. Peppers” everyday. He aims to only consume around 800 calories a day, which is just insane for someone that was as muscular as he was.
Those poor actors, huh? Starving just to make the movie as real as possible! This is why they get paid the big bucks, folks! Next time you question why we pay actors more than teachers and firefighters; remember that actors starve for us! When was the last time a teacher dropped 30lbs for her class? Have you ever heard of a firefighter only eating 800 calories a day? No! Because teachers and firefighters are very selfish people.
